bagel chips

July 29th, 2008


I tried to prepare a few goodies for our road trip that we could just toss in the car and snack on. One such treat is bagel chips. They’re super easy, really tasty and last a few days (if you don’t eat them all before that).

All you do is pick up some bagels and let them sit a day or so, or even better, go to your local bagel shop at the end of the day and you can usually get a deal on the day-old bagels. Once they’re a little hard, slice them into thin slices, about 1/4 inch thick and spread them out in a baking pan. Drizzle some olive oil over top and then whatever spices you’d like. I usually sprinkle garlic salt, but you could just do salt, or pepper or get a little crazy and sprinkly a blend of some sort. Oh, I just had a thought that I think would be super tasty… you could use cinnamon bagels and then drizzle them with a little butter and sprinkle some cinnamon sugar over top… that would be really delightful! Then you just toss them in the oven for about 20 minutes and you’ve got yourself some tasty bagel chips.

Bagel Chips

2-4 day-old bagels (whatever flavor you choose)
1/4 cup olive oil (more or less)
1 tablespoon garlic salt

Preheat oven to 350°
slice bagels into 1/4 inch slices. arrange in one layer in 9×13 baking pan (with sides).
drizzle olive oil over top and toss around to make sure all are coated.
sprinkle garlic salt over bagel slices and toss around again.
bake in oven for about 20 minutes, shake after 10.

    Loved these, and was amazed how easy they were to make. I did turn the heat down after about 10 mins and only had white one’s on hand to make into chips but will def. get some day olds and make variety. A place I used to love to eat back east always served Bagel chips with their soup and so I’m thrilled to make my own. I searched the web and came across your recipe. In the past I’ve found Pumpernickle bagel chips to be my favs. We had the plain one’s with cream of spinach soup tonight. Yum.
